Biography Lorenzo Feliciati & Dominique Vantomme
is rapidly gaining recognition as one of Europe’s most dependably creative bassists. “I find that Feliciati's style on the bass reminds me more of players like Victor Bailey, Percy Jones, Jaco, Gary Willis and perhaps Jeff Berlin,” writes MJ Brady in Proggnosis.com. “Progressive rock, fusion, world fusion are heard on a CD from perhaps Italy's best kept secret on the bass guitar.” A prolific studio musician who’s played on hundreds of pop and rock projects, he’s released a series of stimulating albums featuring his original compositions, such as 2008’s trio session Wasabi (Picanto) with pianist Alessandro Gwis and drummer Emanuele Smimmo and 2010’s Closer (ViaVeneto Jazz) with guest Cuong Vu. He’s probably best known as the leader of Naked Truth. Featuring Vu (recently replaced by Graham Haynes), Roy Powell on piano and Hammond B3 and drummer Pat Mastelotto, the band’s debut album Shizaru (Rarenoise) earned glowing reviews. Rarenoise is slated to release Feliciati’s third CD under his own name, Frequent Flyer, this winter, with an impressive roster of guests, including Vu, Powell, Mastelotto and Bob Mintzer.
